Pacifier Clips with Fabric Yo-yo
Ahh, cute pacifier clips! I think Rebekah had the ugly dollar store variety, so when I saw this tutorial on Make It & Love It I had to make a couple. I did not have any cute buttons to use, so I made a fabric yo-yo instead. It was my first time making them, and I will definitely be making more! What a great embellishment! I followed the tutorial here, which was very easy to follow. One tip I have for you though is to sew close to the folded edge, not the raw edge, otherwise it doesn't gather nicely.
As an added bonus, I was able to make both of these without spending anything! I just happened to have the same badge clips that Ashley recommended from Walmart. I bought a box of them for homeschooling and only used 2 for my kids!
I did have to use velcro on the end of the ribbon instead of snaps, I need to look into getting a snap press, it'd come in handy. I ended up hand sewing the velcro on, which was a little tricky, but it looked much better than what the machine did!
